Native Radio

Native radio is an area that has grown exponentially in recent history as it has proven to be an excellent means of transferring information among reservations and other tribal communities across the Americas.  Here are some examples of programs from various radio stations in the US and Canada.  The MP3 interviews are from an institutional program called Living Voices run out of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.  Native America Calling is a program from the Koahnic Broadcast Corporation that is broadcast by public and tribal radio stations across the country.  The sample program available here is about subsistence farming on the Tohono O’odham reservation in Arizona. ThinkNDN consists of an hour of entertainment and news that is broadcast weekly to the Vancouver Aboriginal Community.  Enjoy the programs below and also check out their websites in our Links section.
